Hold-Out Pistols

Barton Arms Bracer

Another fashion hit from world-renowned Barton Arms! The ultimate hold-out weapon, the Bracer looks like a beautiful piece of jewelry, a massive bracelet of titanium polished to bring out its natural blue colour and crystalline structure. Built in to the bracer next to the latch, which lies against the underside of the wrist, is a single-shot mechanism designed to fire a single hollow-point round. The wearer arms the weapon by sliding part of the design on the latch, and fires it by bending the hand back to free the muzzle. The bracelet is an original design by Bartellucci.

**Refers to the concealability of the weapon mechanism.

>>>>>[Same firing mechanism as the gun cane. This weapon provides no barrel whatsoever, so accuracy is pretty damn lousy. I saw a corp-scag fire one of thes at what she thought was a go-ganger, miss by a mile, then yell bloody blue murder because the muzzle flash burned her wrist.]<<<<<<

Barton Arms Gun Cane

A perfectly-balanced walking stick...but with a lethal difference. The Barton gun cane has an artificial ivory handle in the familiar "pistol grip" style used for walking sticks since time immemorial. With the Barton, however, style meets function. A quick press of the thumb on a recessed stud primes the weapon; an easy squeeze with the index finger fires a single 8 mm hollow-point round from the tip of the cane. Perfect for that once-in-a-lifetime surprise!

Hold Out 2/9* SS 1 6L 1 10/7 days 500 2

*Use the first number if attempting to conceal the entire cane; use the second number to determine how easy it is for someone to notice the weapon mechanism within the cane.

>>>>>[Ya know, I kind of like this idea, flaky though it sounds. Range and accuracy are predictably poor, but its not for sniping anyway. More likely you'll be cramming it into the belly of a would-be mugger...or a security guard, for that matter. Reload the gun by unscrewign the lower 15 centimeters of the cane and mounting another round in the chamber.]<<<<<<

Fichetti Tiffani Needler

Fichetti Firearms does it again. Fichetti produced last season's ultra-fashionable yet effective Self-Defender personal pistol. This year's model, the Tiffani Needler, Updates the styling and color selection and upgrades the technology. Fichetti decreased the round caliber to 1.5mm, but made the needle rounds* explosve to increase stopping power.

* Though similar to flechette rounds, needle rounds do not use flechette ammo rules. Designed to penetrate, rather than shred and tear like flechette rounds, characters use Impact Armor to defend against rounds rather than Ballistic Armor as for standard rounds. Needle rounds will not penetrate Impact Armor with a rating of 3 or greater as the rigid plating in these types of armors stops needle rounds. Needle rounds are useless against vehicles in all situations.

Needle ammo can be purchased for all classes of firearms for double the cost of regular rounds. Needle ammo uses the same Damage Code as the weapon's standard ammo, but may not be combined with other types of ammo.

Morrissey Elan

The smallest of Atlanta-based Morrissey Manufacturing's new line of personal defense options, the Elan displays a refreshing style all its own. Like many modern weapons, the Elan is constructed mostely of polyresin. While other polyresin pistols retain the blocky "automatic pistol" shape that initially stemmed from the machining processes required to produce metal parts, the Elan uses polyresin's true potential to produce a hold-out both stunning in appearance and effective.

* The Morrisey Elan pistol cannot fire flechette or needle ammo.

>>>>>[The first time I had one of these pointed at me, it took me a second or two to even recognize it as a gun. It looks like a plastic toy pistol left in the sun too long, or stuffed in a microwave and half-melted.

Anyway, I lifted it from the suit impolite enough to stick it in my face and put it through the paces myself. It's actually a nice piece of ordinance. It packs a little more punch than your standard hold-out, and produces negligible recoil. It can't fire flechette rounds though, a serious disadvantage.]<<<<<<

Heavy Pistols

Morrissey Alta

The top of Morrissey's new line, the Alta Heavy Pistol has no peer. The Alta provides the same dependable laser sight as the Elite, and includes Morrissey's proprietary chamber mechanism for outstanding mechanical reliability. Serious stopping power with serious style: the Morrissey Alta!

>>>>>[Morrissey's style-over-substance attitude prevented them from adding any kind of recoil compensation tot his puppy. Too bad: it doesn't mass much for a heavy pistol, so most of the recoil transfers right into all those little bons in your wrist. Suppose Morrissey also sells designer braces for sprained wrists?]<<<<<<

Morrissey Elite

The second entry in the Morrissey line, the Elite brings to light pistols the same sense of style that the Elan gives hold-out pistols. The Elite ups the ante on other lights by incorporating an under-barrel integral laser sight and increasing the size of the round. The Morrissey Elite lets you take 'em down in style!

>>>>>[The tech's better though. The laser is reliable, and difficult to knock out of alignment. Because the Elite chambers heavy pistol rounds, you can use the wizzer special purpose rounds like APDS. If you're into blowing big holes in things (and who isn't?), consider APDS/explosive, and so on...]<<<<<<

G12A3z
G12A3z

The H&K G12A3z is the next logical step from the H&K G11A4z, the premier assault rifle of the last two generations. Improving on the best characterstics of the reliable G11, the G12 is lighter, less bulky, and equipped with an integral laser sight, Gas Vent 2 recoil reduction system, and telescoping shoulder-stock for an additional level of recoil reduction. Additionally, the G12 can carry an under barrel grenade launcher at only a fraction of the concealability loss.
